Grade A Protection
on December 15, 2011
I have arthritis at the base of my thumb and have tried a number of thumb spicas/protectors. While all were helpful, they were also large, thick and hot. For these reasons I was attracted to the slim design of the Tee Pee, and on these accounts the Tee Pee is a great success. Additionally, while some of the other models require hand washing, the Tee Pee can be machine washed and dried.
The only caveat I would offer is that the Tee Pee doesn't offer quite the same degree of restriction as the larger models. So, for example, while it works perfectly in one of my problem activities--holding and reading a book--it's not as effective in another--playing chords on my guitar. For other than this latter case, however, the Tee Pee works great and does so without the above-mentioned shortcomings. So, while I can't give it an A+, for me it's earned a solid A.
